Drawing upon thirty years of intense study and reflection on Paul, Douglas Campbell offers a distinctive overview of the apostle’s thinking that builds on Albert Schweitzer’s classic emphasis on the importance for Paul of the resurrection. But Campbell—learning here from Karl Barth—traces through the implications of Christ for Paul’s thinking about every other theological topic, from revelation and the resurrection through the nature of the church and mission. As he does so, the conversation broadens to include Stanley Hauerwas in relation to Christian formation, and thinkers like Willie Jennings to engage post-colonial concerns.
But the result of this extensive conversation is a work that, in addition to providing a description of Paul’s theology, also equips readers with what amounts to a Pauline manual for church planting. Good Pauline theology is good practical theology, ecclesiology, and missiology, which is to say, Paul’s theology belongs to the church and, properly understood, causes the church to flourish. In these conversations, Campbell pushes through interdisciplinary boundaries to explicate different aspects of Pauline community with notions like network theory and restorative justice.
Pauline Dogmatics concludes by moving to applications of Paul in the modern period to painful questions concerning gender, sexual activity, and Jewish inclusion, offering Pauline navigations that are orthodox, inclusive, and highly constructive.
Beginning with the God revealed in Jesus, and in a sense with ourselves, Campbell progresses through Pauline ethics and eschatology, concluding that the challenge for the church is not only to learn about Paul but to follow Jesus as he did.

"Pauline Dogmatics is quite simply the most enjoyable biblical or theology related book I have ever read, and I consider it to be the best book on Pauline theology ever written. A superlative endorsement like this would make me cynical too, but I mean it. This is theology written not simply about Paul, but with Paul, under Paul, illuminating Paul, which reaches beyond the cerebral assault into my own life and practices with unnerving immediacy. And its penny-drop-moment-o-meter is off the scale! This is a dazzling Pauline dogmatics, animated by what matters most: the reality of God in Christ. As such it yields astonishing results. Prepare to have your minds scrambled, your interpretive tables overturned, your exegetical hair ruffled, and your theological horizons blown apart. With unique insight, Campbell slam-dunks the most important thing to get right when reading Paul, and he then pushes this through in what can only be called joyful directions. Utterly. Brilliant."
author of Paul and the Person: Reframing Pauls Anthropology
"With stunning breadth and his trademark brio, Campbell passionately argues for the heart of Pauls gospel and its transforming effects: the Lordship of Christ, the love of God, and the power of the Spirit unleashed in the world. A must-read for scholars and preachers alike."
